A big weekend for dreaming around here. First I had one I'm still trying to figure out: I held a neighbor girl, now a fourth grader but a toddler in my dream, over Kathleen's washing machine as she peed all over Kathleen's clean clothes. When Kathleen came home and discovered what I had done she said, "Now I can't hear the angels talking." Anyone want to interpret THAT one?

Next night I was standing in a pitch black kitchen with an old friend. I was preparing to leave and trying to gather up all my things. She pulled out a bunch of plastic bowls and said, "These are yours." (Again, it's pitch black.) I opened the refrigerator behind me to shine the light on the situation and when I saw the bowls she was trying to pass off on me, I said, "That's not my stuff."

Uh huh. A. Little. Like. That.

Can't talk now - gotta go open refrigerators, light candles, flick on all the lights and re-examine what's actually mine.

And what's not.

Sounds like you're already figuring it out:)

Never a dull moment in that brain of yours, is there?

Love you.

Love the insights you get from your dreams. And that picture is amazing.

Ditto Deb, Fullsoulahead, and Kario...

However, I can't resist putting in my two cents, since I love dreams (wonder if I can work sense into that sentence, too).

#1: If the part of you that is you (persona? how you are recognized in the world?) allows someone/some part of you that is older (and knows better) to act like a toddler (regress) and piss on the part of you that is clean (cleaning up your act), then the part of you that is Kathleen (who loves you and supports you unconditionally and is always. there.) can't hear the angels sing.

#2: Even when "they" are trying to keep you in the dark, you have a source of light. You are not willing to take on someone else's old storage containers (baggage). Refrigerator? Keeps things fresh--doesn't let them go bad.

Okay...there you go. Tell me I am full of it, if you want. Perhaps this is related to the upcoming class and responses?

I'm also going through the "what's really mine" thoughts as I feng-shui the house (just finished Move Your Stuff, Change Your Life - good stuff!) It's quite a process.
